Since chameleon3388 doesn't post, I will try to do my best with the pictures I received from Karen.
Dotcarp asked me not to wait for her Cards, cause she did not think her Cards are in the running for First Place.
Well I beg to differ, I think her Cards are really great and go right with our theme. " It's Winter, but Spring is
on it's way". But I let our Members decide.
A special "Thank You" to Karen, for helping us out.
I honestly can say, it was well worth waiting for. Great Job Dotcarp2000

I received my cards from Dot yesterday, I think our snail is getting slower.Are the fairies thinlit dies?
The first card is right on the theme, winter on front and spring on the interior, so is the first card.I wouldn't change anything on either card.
The embellishments included papers, cut outs, will make beautiful card The parts to make a beautiful valentine. And fairies, beautiful fairies, right in there with my butterflies. Looks like all the embellishments didn't come thruogh, missing valentine parts. Love them all

Very nice swap, Dottie!!

And yes, you did very well on the theme!!

I think the 2nd card is my favorite and that little bird holding the umbrella is so cute.

On the embellishments -- I love, love, love that blue card with the die cut flaps AND the embossing folder you used on the white inserts, I tried to buy online when it was on 'sale' and missed the deadline -- I still need to purchase it (which goes against my New Year's Resolution!!!) LOL.

The fairies are also so adorable -- and we are missing the hearts -- but I'm sure they are equally as nice!

Great job and well worth the wait!!

Great cards, the first card is very cute but I also think the second card is my favorite... Did you stamp on top of the glitter? I didn't know that was possible... Have to try that some day.
The blue card with inlay is very nice. Where did you find that die?
Cute fairies too, I would like to know if that is a die too.

Very nice swap, I think Roseanna will be pleased.

You will have lots of time to order this die before New Year and your resolutions, at least 11 months and 2 weeks... LOL

what a cute idea winter outside but spring inside love it clever woman like the others I prefer the 2nd card but they are both lovely and those fairies do you think they could fly over to Scotland

The second card is my favorite. Love the front...so wintery! My husband used to call me a 'pervert' because I love looking at 'naked' trees. They are so pretty....look like lace, delicate and beautiful! LOVE that little bird singing in the rain with her little umbrella. So cute! The embellishments are gorgeous! The items for that card will be sooo pretty when it's all made up. The fairies are perfect. What fun! Good job!

I'm very willing to die cut fairies for you. They won't fly to Scotland but they will go via snail mail. Let me know what color and kind of paper you would like. They also color nicely with markers. They don't die cut well with foil paper.

I sure have a lot to learn. What you did to your Card is Greek to me, but I certainly like the results, and as soon as the results are in, we will see how many more members agree with me.

The cards are both lovely but I agree with Friday's Child I like the tree card best but then I like trees is all stages of dress. The embellishments are great and the fairies delightful. A beautiful swap.
